How to make the most of your corporate car rental
Whether your employees are travelling for work or leisure, a corporate car rental scheme can add real value to your benefits offering. From personalised programmes to 24/7 support, this month we’ve detailed the ways you can make the most out of your corporate car rental.
Professional, personal support
Regardless of whether you’re signing up for your first fleet car or need some advice on upgrading your contract, remember that you’ll always have the support and experience of a specialist team to draw on.
From initial booking through to the final delivery, you will always be supported by a highly professional team. Their sole focus is ensuring you and your team spend less time signing paperwork, and more time on the road in your corporate rental vehicle.
For example, here at Fourways Vehicle Solutions, our team are able to help enforce your company policy, by implementing controls over the reservation process.
This support also includes texting drivers for mileage updates and reminding them to refuel once their rental term comes to an end. We do the hard work, so you don’t have to.
Full account management
If you’re interested in expanding your fleet or simply need advice on possible cost savings for your business, you can take advantage of the account management services your corporate vehicle rental company offers.
Your account manager is professionally trained to work with different business types and make recommendations on how to enhance your business vehicle package.
Flexible contract terms
From daily rental to a long-term contract, flexible contract terms are another way to make the most out of your corporate car rental. These can be tailored to meet your specific needs, and come with a competitive price to match.
Daily rental is best suited if you or your employees need to attend off-site meetings, or you require replacement vehicles. In direct contrast, a long-term rental means you’ll benefit from a modern vehicle, without the added worries of depreciation or on-going servicing. You will also lessen the grey fleet headache that employees using their own vehicles brings.
Most corporate rental companies are able to offer a delivery and collection service, but make sure you organise this in advance.
Benefit from a wider vehicle selection
Gone are the days where you’re restricted to a small collection of vehicles. In the modern age of driving, you have a huge variety of fleet cars to choose from. The vehicle you choose is now based on several factors, including:
- Average mileage of each driver
- Your environmental impact policies
- Your forecasted budget
- Who will be using the vehicle, and how often
Improve your environmental credentials
With so many vehicles on the road, it’s important that you take into consideration the choice of low emission cars available. It’s easy to forget that every time your employees drive away, their emissions have an impact on the environment around them.
Another way to make the most of your corporate car rental is to choose a vehicle that has lower emissions than other models.
